Ploning Movie Review

Ploning Movie ReviewFinally, I have seen the movie of Judy Ann Santos, Ploning, over the weekend. The movie was the first "indie" film by Judy Ann Santos and also her first time to produce a movie, correct me if I'm wrong.

Anyway, until now I am still figuring it out what the movie was all about. Am I just drugged or the movie was just dragging. In my opinion, the movie was quite disappointing, it lacks depth and story. Now I know why it did not make it to the Oscars. Acting wise, the only person that did well was Gina Pareno with her breakdown scene with the salt.

It was nice though that the movie showed how nice Palawan is.

I heard that the money collected from Ploning will be used in the next indie film by Judy Ann Santos. Let's just hope that it would be a good one.

Maybe it is excusable as it is the first time? Anyway, I was never a fan of Juday but since it is Pinoy, I naturally would be happy if it has secceeded. I would love to watch it but I am still without resources how to watch or to have Filipino stuffs from where I stay. Thanks for sharing to us all what is happening in the Philippines.

hehe finally a movie review.. yan na g kinakatakot ko kaya as much as possible I don't want to make a review of a local movie.. there is something wrong with our movies, we focused always ont he big thing.. on long term types.. and if you will notice foreign movies, stories happened for only a couple of days, unlike our movies here na meron pang a months later a year later a decade later a century later na drama..

hi..:) maybe u got surprised na may nagcomment pa to this review. i just happened to see this movie yestrday on abs-cbn. & i actually find it touching.. it made me cry with the realization of the value of the important persons in my life.. :) a lil confusing though, so i looked for a review & saw yours. i also searched for teasers & intrviews on youtube & listening to the script writers, i understood their point of writing it that way.. i would have appreciate it more if they had shown how ploning died. btw, digo is ploning's son right? - shine
